. Physical vapor deposition (PVD) coatings is a method that uses devices such as sputtering targets and evaporation slugs to deposit thin layers of coatings on materials such as semiconductor
devices and thin-film solar panels. The growing need for highly sophisticated surface-related properties through advanced mono-structured coatings, such as super magnetic, optical, catalytic, and electrical, has contributed to the growth of the physical vapor deposition
industry. The rapid growth of the medical and healthcare industry has increased the demand for medical devices; thereby, fueling market growth. Furthermore, the declining electronics prices and adoption of high-end technology devices are consequently increasing the consumption of electronic devices, which is the major factor driving the physical vapor deposition coatings market growth during the forecast period.
The physical vapor deposition industry has been potentially hit hard by the COVID-19 outbreak on numerous fronts such as lowered demand and productivity, operational and supply chain disruptions, potentially tightening credit markets, and more. Also, the production facilities of the electronics components such as microelectronics, semiconductor devices and transistors have been halted in various regions owing to the logistics slowdown and unavailability of the workforce. Furthermore, various e-commerce companies have discontinued the delivery of non-essential items (including most of the electronics products), which is having a major impact on the electrical and electronics sector growth, which is hindering the demand for physical vapor deposition coatings. All of these factors are limiting the growth of the physical vapor deposition coatings market in various regions during the pandemic.

Physical Vapor Deposition Coatings Market Segment Analysis - By Type
The sputtering deposition segment held a significant share in the physical vapor deposition coatings market in 2020. PVD by sputtering is a term used to refer to a physical vapor deposition (PVD) technique in which high-energy particle bombardment ejects atoms or molecules from a target material so that the expelled atoms or molecules may condense as a thin film on a substrate. Sputtering has been one of the most commonly used methods, including titanium, aluminum alloys, silver, gold, TiW, and tungsten, to deposit different metallic films on wafers. Sputtering offers various advantages over other PVD methods such as sputtering simplify the deposition of uniform thickness over large wafers; it easily helps in controlling film thickness, and more. All these factors are contributing to sputtering deposition market growth during the forecast period.
Physical Vapor Deposition Coatings Market Segment Analysis - By Material
The metal segment held the largest share in the physical vapor deposition coatings market in 2020 and is growing at a CAGR of 6.5%. Iron, steel, aluminum, copper, zinc, and more are some of the metals that are used widely for industrial applications. Most of these metals and their alloy substrates can be applied with PVD coatings, although certain materials need a chromium and nickel base layer to enhance corrosion resistance and increase durability. PVD coating allows the processing of metal vapors (chromium, titanium nitride, and aluminum) which are deposited as thin, strongly adhered pure metal or alloy coatings on the metal substrate. Metals and their alloy applications have been found almost everywhere in recent times, ranging from construction, electronics, thin-film solar panels, machinery, and equipment, to cars and refractories. Therefore, the market for the application of PVD coating on metal substrates is also enormous with large applications of metal substrates.
Physical Vapor Deposition Coatings Market Segment Analysis - By End-Use Industry
The electrical and electronics segment held the largest share in the physical vapor deposition coatings market in 2020 and is growing at a CAGR of 6.8%, owing to its high process performance, large-scale pattern-ability, lower cost, and environmentally friendly design.

Expanding Automobile Industry
In various engine components, friction and wear have crucial effects on engine output, combustion efficiency, oil consumption, and internal combustion (IC) engine lifetime. The metallic components of the IC engine, in particular the piston and valve system, suffer from higher friction under certain loads, speeds, and temperatures. One of the novel techniques to decrease the frictional forces and enhance the mechanical properties of engine components is thin-film coating. Physical vapor deposition (PVD) coating is a preferred choice in recent time to deposit thin-film coating on engine components in automobiles due to its versatile properties such as affordable, wear-resistant, and superior quality coatings. And the automobile industry is expanding at a lucrative rate in various regions. For instance, according to OICA, the production of passenger cars has increased by 2.6 % in Malaysia in 2019. And the production of passenger cars in Africa increased from 776,967 in 2018, to 787,287 in 2019, a total increase of 1.3%. Thus, it is anticipated that with the increasing automobile industry, the demand for thin film coating of the engine will also drastically increase, which will then drive the physical vapor deposition coatings market growth.
